Doctor Who Items

Doctor Who is a popular BBC TV series that has aired on and off since 1963. Currently the series hosts its 11th doctor played by Matt Smith. The show allows viewers to travel through the universe in a machine known as Tardis, that looks like a police box on the outside, but is huge on the inside.

There are lots of cool gadgets involved including the sonic screwdriver. This show is filled with lots of science fiction fun including battling such enemies as Daleks and Cybermen. Did you see this year's Christmas special?
